  • You say the paging faults get very high.  Is there a corresponding drop in available memory?

    What is your total installed RAM?

  • Hi Neil,

    I have found this issue common personally with firefox.

    There is a neat feature in Windows 7 which prevents this which is a memory balooning facility.

    Try the following:

    * Increate your virtual memory if disk space permits (or install more RAM if possible as per Teddy's comments)

    * Raise the CPU priority on firefox.exe
